chairmen that all look like those guys. now, the chief strategist of romney's campaign, stu stevens, is describing why he lost. he wrote in "the washington post" today, quote, there was a time not so long ago when the problems of the democratic party revolved around being too liberal and too dependent on minorities. obama turned those problems into advantages and rode that strategy to victory. but he was a charismatic african-american president with a billion dollars, no primary, and media that often felt morally conflicted about being critical. how easy is that to replicate? in other words, the election was an anomaly giving republicans little reason to worry in the future. this morning stevens said mitt romney's ideas were right on, as he puts it. he's getting cool, he's right on in his talking. let's listen. >> i think that the ideas carried the day for us and that success that we had, though it obviously wasn't enough to win the race, was based on the candidate mitt romney and on his ideas. >> well, using that '60s language of right on, he isn't quite. he continued the outreach

explaining to their constituents, we're not talking noug about what does romney try to call it, gifts. we're talking about their constituents in kentucky, mr. mcconnell, your constituents are going to having to pail $3,000 more in taxes because you want to protect donald trump? i don't know how they sell that, e.j. >> it's very hard to sell. that's why the president pulled out that pen, that picture you're going to see a lot, which is why i think they are eventually going to give way. michelle is absolutely right. there were a lot of republicans who still don't want to give the president anything. but i think the signal was that john boehner was re-elected as speaker by this republican conference, and they knew that boehner was going to be a dealmaker with the president. so even the hard liners may have read the election returns, and i think even the hard liners don't be responsible for a tax increase. >> not only boehner, even mcconnell. let me show you this, michelle. mcconnell and boehner had a different kind of sound, different tone today after the meeting. watch this. >> obviously th

of this that's very disturbing is in the second debate with mitt romney, he stated well, i called it an act of terror in the rose garden on september 12th. he didn't, to start with, and second of all, we didn't know until after the election that on "60 minutes" he said quote, on that same day, it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved. so he either didn't tell the american people the truth in that debate or he didn't tell "60 minutes" the truth. one of the two. >> let's cut to the quick on some of this, because you've gone after very hard ambassador rice. the u.n. ambassador. she has maintained a position of acting in good faith on cia intelligence briefings. that is what led her to say what she said on the morning television show on that sunday. mortars and rocket propelled grenades and heavy weapons to demonstrations. >> right. i want to play you a clip. this is condoleezza rice, who was talking on fox news about benghazi in october. listen to this. >> when there is a fog of war like this, there are a lot of competing stories coming in, there's a lot of c

intelligence that would have been provided to governor romney receiving intelligence briefings in the final stages of the campaign and perhaps i have believed that's why he stayed away from the issue in the final debate. so why aren't they saying, we need more information about the cia? we need to know where was the intelligence failure on the part of cia. that seems to me a very reasonable question as opposed to holding responsible she who went on and repeated what those talking points were saying. >> erin, let me bring you in on this. you heard michael, a laundry list of things they could be asking regarding the investigation but you have susan collins and john mccain willing to endorse john kerry. that may be their sincere and honest opinion but why not answer i'm focused on benghazi and the investigation and not potential nominees for secretary of state, both eager to say they would support john kerry. why? >> well, look. republicans are still looking to punish the administration over benghazi. we know that. republicans think that president obama got a pass on benghazi during the electi
